Not only did Cliff Lee bash what proved to be the game-winning home run last night at Dodger Stadium, but Phils beat writer Jim Salisbury tells of how Clifton kind of called his shot. (Sorta)
afternoon, broadcaster Sarge Matthews and Cliff Lee were talking about
how difficult it was to hit a ball completely out of Dodger Stadium, you
know, over the roof of the outfield pavilion. Matthews told Lee that
Willie Stargell (twice), Mike Piazza and Mark McGwire were the only guys
to do it.
Lee listened to Sarge talk about the difficulty of the feat and said: “I’ll do it tonight.”
As you likely saw, Lee’s homer did not exit the stadium entirely, landing in the seats rather. But still, a fun story.
Lee went on to say he was just joking with Sarge, but if Cliff has taught us anything, it’s if you will it, it is no dream.
